Brava! Women in Business Achievement AwardsAugust 8th, 2011
We are excited to share with you the outcome of Smart CEO’s Brava! Women in Business Achievement Awards.
The award ceremony was held in late July at the lavish National Museum of Women in the Arts. This venue, with its history of exclusively recognizing women in the arts, set the perfect tone for celebrating the exemplary leadership of the local business women receiving the 2011 Brava! Award.
While the ballroom of the NMWA made the event the grand affair it was, the color palette of soft greens, whites and violets evoked the feeling of a charming spring soiree. The beautiful floral arrangements of purple hydrangea, white roses and green accents brightened the space.
At the start of the event guests were greeted with their choice of white wine or sparkling water. Once the guests thirsts were quenched, scrumptious hors d’oeuvres, including Korean barbecue chicken tacos, tenderloin crostini and lamb + hazelnut baklava were butlered throughout the ballroom.
Guests also had the option of visiting a Chef Manned Naked Ravioli Station where our chef served either Gnudi Mushroom Ricotta Ravioli or Spinach Ricotta Ravioli. Other stations, including a Fruit & Cheese and Portofino Display, and a deconstructed summer mesquite grill display, were also stationed throughout the venue. Finally after guests had gotten their fill the award ceremony began.
Thank you Smart CEO for giving us the opportunity to help celebrate the amazing Brava! Award Winners. Congratulations and Brava! to all.
